Subject Visual Studio 2010 + Firebird 2.1 (64 bits)
Author deborazb

I'm trying to install Firebird on my VS 2010, but it's not working.

First, I installed NETProvider-2.5.2.msi. Then, I downloaded FirebirdDDEXProvider-2.0.5 and follow the steps in the ReadMe.txt:
1) Installed FirebirdSql.VisualStudio.DataTools.dll from gacutil.exe
2) Modified all machine.config:
The parameter now are: Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=3750abcc3150b00c
3) Modified FirebirdDDEXProvider32.reg and FirebirdDDEXProvider64.reg, to point to the right assembly, and executed them.

I've tryed before on VS 2008 (32 bits) the same steps, and it worked. Now, I don't know if the problem is VS 2010 or my 64 bits system.

Is there any special case for Firebird installation on VS 2010 or on 64 bits systems??

Thank you in advance.
